Hello, wonder if someone might be able to offer a little advice to a newbie?
I want to build a simple rover that I can put in one corner of a field and it will travel in a straight line, u-turn and travel back on a path parallel to the first. Then rinse and repeat until a whole small field is completely covered.
I have tried to build this from the ground up using an arduino, some Cytron motor controllers, GPS and compass all attached to an electric scooter, but I’m struggling, so someone recommended ardupilot.
Just looking through what’s on offer here and I’m confused. Wonder, could anyone please advise on what hardware I would need to automate this electric scooter? Is ardupilot something that I can just strap onto an existing vehicle, or is it designed to work only with specific chassis?
